THE TEEN MAGAZINE
- The teen magazine is entitled The Teen Room and is published every quarter.
- This section of the website consists of articles specific to teenages.
- The Teen Room was created to increase traffic to the site and create and initial introduction to teenages of the School Community, which they will be aware of when learning videos are made available on the site.
- This project has been placed on hold as funding is currently being raised to fund the project.
- Coding revamp of the School Community site is required to accommodate technological advancements.
- This will not affect the front-end of the national platform.
- The coding revamp will promote efficiency in managing the platforms.
ONE FAMILY ONE MEAL ONE DAY CAMPAIGN
- In collaboration with Food Forward SA, DPMP (the owner of The School Community Programme), is currently raising funds to feed 14.5 million South Africans that go hungry every day, through the sale of sanitizers.
- Proceeds from this initiative will also be allocated to The School Community Programme to provide funding for the resources required to infiltrate the schools and manage the platforms.
- A total of 1.45 billion sanitizers need to be sold. With Ms Africa 2018 as the Campaign Ambassador, the programme is gaining momentum and achievement of targets is monitored extensively. From the sale of every sanitizer, R1 is allocated to DPMP with 50c thereof being allocated to The School Community programme which will generate revenue for the programme investors. This ultimately means that if targeted sales of 1.4 billion sanitiziers are achieved a total of R725 million will be injected into the School Community Programme, which will result in R108 million being made available for distribution to the programme investors. This would mean that R108 million would be set aside for distribution to programme investors according to their percentage allocations. The targeted timeframe for achievement of the sales target is 6 months.
